Our beloved son, Aaron Michael Schmidt, 22, Mandan, passed away on July 29, 2021.
He was born in Bismarck on July 21, 1999.
Aaron enjoyed traveling and wanting to explore more places while making friends wherever he went. With his heart of gold, he never knew a stranger and once came home without shoes because someone else needed them more than he did. He was an old soul and grandma’s boy.
